The Gold Series: Unearthing the World's Gold Supply


 -- Published: Friday, 4 April 2014 | Print  | Disqus 

THE 2014 GOLD SERIES: PART 2 OF 5

“Unearthing the World’s Gold Supply” Presented by: Goldcorp

This infographic, part two in our 2014 Gold Series, covers the full supply picture behind the yellow metal.

Within the planet’s crust, there is only 1 gram of gold for every 250 tonnes (550,000 lbs) of earth. Gold’s rarity means that finding economic deposits is extremely difficult. To understand how gold mining and supply work, we must first unearth how gold deposits form.

Over time, gold dissolves in hot water deep in the crust under immense pressure. It is then transported and deposited upwards as the water travels up cracks and fissures towards the surface. Generally, the major gold deposit types include: placer, volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS), epithermal, porphyry, carlin-type, and orogenic deposits.

Part 3 of The 2014 Gold Series on gold rising gold demand in Asia will go out at the end of April / early May. Click here to make sure you are on our free mailing list to receive it.
